This is the beginning of the Hightstown Bypass (NJ 133) eastbound at Princeton-Hightstown Road (CR 571) in East Windsor Township.  Unlike other town bypasses, the Hightstown Bypass (NJ 133) is a completely new route, and therefore does not include direct connections to the intersecting roads at each end.  Instead, traffic signals are used at both ends of the freeway.  Filmed August 17, 2000.
